Women in the Craft Beer Industry

On the latest Baltimore Boomerang podcast, we revisit the perception of women in the craft beer industry.

On the latest episode of Baltimore Boomerang, we revisit an article from our February 2017 issue “Breaking the Pint Glass Ceiling,” which explored the perception of women in the the craft beer industry. Interviewing female owners and brewers in Baltimore, it was evident that they still faced stigmas and stereotypes on a daily basis.

Two years later, we discuss the issue with Guinness Open Gate Brewery & Barrel House head brewer Hollie Stephenson, Checkerspot Brewing co-owner and brewer Judy Neff, and Suspended Brewing co-owner Yasmin Karimian. While some strides have been made both locally and nationally with groups like the Pink Books Society and Baltimore Beer Babes, there is still more work to be done.

Listen in to hear how women are breaking the mold, battling “internal sexism,” and working smarter in the brewhouse.
